I am totally kicking myself for not working on this post a week earlier, but hey, actual Halloween is in two days, so maybe these costume ideas can still help you guys. ;)
I had so much fun coming up with some easy costume ideas last year (check it out here), and that is why I just had to do it again this year! These costumes are a breeze to put together... plus, they are current, so people are sure to know who you're dressed up as! :D
Costume #1: Taylor Swift
Almost everyone is talking about Taylor Swift's new album, Red. And I bet there are only a handful of people who haven't seen even a glimpse of her music video for We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (That song is sooo about Jake Gyllenhaal, by the way, haha!).
Here are two looks from her music video that we can use for Halloween:
Wear your cutest and most colorful pajamas.
Sport some black-framed eyeglasses.
Wear red lipstick.
If you have long blonde locks with bangs = perfect! If not, you can always wear a wig.
If you'd rather go for a more dressy look, pair a red polka dot top with black high-waist shorts.
Wear glittery oxfords and accessorize with a gold bracelet.
Paint your nails red and don't forget your red lips and blonde wig! ;)
Costume #2: Kristen Stewart
One of the biggest stories of 2012 is the Kristen Stewart-Rupert Sanders cheating scandal.
I mean, come on, honestly, who didn't see those photos, right?!
This is THE easiest costume ever, I promise! ;)
Wear a white tank top over a colored bra, preferably neon yellow.
Wear navy blue sweatpants over gray shorts.
Finish the look with red Converse Chuck Taylors, messy hair, and oooh, don't forget "Rob's" Dodgers hat!
Additional thought... you can ask your husband, boyfriend, or guy friend to dress up as either Robert Pattinson or Rupert Sanders. ;)
Costume #3: Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie's right leg got its own Twitter account, so of course this outfit deserves to be a Halloween costume, haha! ;)
If you happen to have a long black strapless dress with a high slit = perfect!
If not, perhaps you can buy a cheap black dress and cut in a high slit... if that's not possible, a simple long black dress would do. ;)
Wear black peep-toe pumps, smokey eyes, red lips, and diamond studs.
You can also ask your husband or boyfriend to dress up in a tux -- he can be the Brad to your Angelina.
Show off those plump lips and don't forget to stick out that right leg! ;)
These next two costumes are versatile -- they will work for both men and women:
Costume #4: Psy
If you haven't heard of Psy and Gangnam Style, then you must be living away from modern technology. ;)
This song has been everywhere and this dance has been danced by everyone, haha!
Wear black pants, a white button-down shirt, and a blue blazer.
Accessorize with a black belt, black bow tie, black shoes, and black sunnies.
Girls, you can slick back your hair and put it up to really get the full Psy look.
Oh and of course, don't forget to sing and dance Gangnam Style! ;)
Even if you have to buy some pieces for this costume, those pieces will definitely come in handy someday... after all, we all need these basic pieces in our closet, right? :)
Costume #5: Prince Harry
Another big story of 2012 is Prince Harry's Las Vegas vacation.
Doing the whole naked romp for Halloween is not a good idea (haha!), but we can recreate the party prince's poolside outfit. ;)
As women, we can't be going around topless and it might be too cold for the guys to go shirtless, so a nude tank top is the answer.
Pair it with red floral board shorts. Accessorize with aviator sunglasses, a necklace with a circle pendant, and a fedora hat.
And don't forget to speak with a British accent! ;)
I still have to decide which one I'm gonna pick for my costume, but what about you guys...
Who or what are you gonna be for Halloween?
What do you think of these costume ideas? Which one is your favorite?
I hope you all have a happy week ahead! :D
